One Word that Best Describes Me: Analytical

Crown experienced 2015 as its most successful in the company’s history. Both Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries saw ratings increases in key demos and dayparts, and the team also scored in the revenue growth department. In Total Day, Hallmark Channel grew 9 percent among W25-54, and for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, there were double-digit spikes across many audience segments, includ­ing W25-54. With Abbott’s industry expertise, Vicary’s commitment and eye for programming hits, McAvoy’s creativity and Roberts’ even-keel style and work ethic, the group is poised for additional expansion.
